Country of Origin’s collection of men’s sweaters, cardigans and accessories is built around a modernist colour palette and timeless design. Each piece is beautifully crafted using traditional methods and the highest quality yarns. If you’re looking for a sustainable alternative to fast fashion, then this is it.
This modern knitwear brand began life in 2014 in a South London Workshop. Founders Ben Taylor and Alice Liptrot have gone on to set up a factory in Wigston, Leicestershire – once an important centre for the knitting industry. The factory is entirely plastic-free, and the focus is very much on sustainability, craftsmanship and high-quality materials. Country of Origin’s manufacturing process has reintroduced traditional methods including hand-linking, a labour intensive process that has largely disappeared from modern garment production. The result is high-quality knitwear that lasts.
The Country of Origin pop up is open until January 10th and you can find it on Lower Stable Street at Coal Drops Yard.
